The reason for time based is that images and text are both in the list.  As
is interaction.  

 

If you don't require that one be time based - then you have a problem in
that you drag too many things into definition.  

If you removed them then you have the opposite problem.  

 

You could take all the time based things and put them at the front - but not
sure if another time based thing came along it wouldn't have to be added. 

Also - this differs from other definitions of multimedia. 

 

Your suggestion would work for most things today.    But is more "list like"
and less definitional.

 

What was the problem with time-based? 

 

Thanks

I'm not sure that time-based is the right qualifier - can we just say
"several different media, including audio or video"?

 

Or, "a presentation that incorporates audio or video along with other media
types, including text, images, and interactivity"

Ah yes.

 

Good point.   

 

How about

 

Multimedia 

Several different media <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Medium> , including at
least one time based media, synchronized to convey information.  Media may
include text, audio, graphics, animation, video, and interactivity.

But we don't consider a combination just of text and graphics to be
multimedia.

Multimedia is the use of several different media

<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image> , animation
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Animation> , video
